What if Monero one day pushed Esperanto into the spotlight? The thought just occurred to me Smiley

I'd like to announce the first alpha release of my unofficial lightweight GUI simplewallet wrapper, lightWallet. Using this program, you don't need to run the bitmonerod daemon on your own computer or do anything on the command line. By default it uses hegemoOn's (a long time Monero supporter) open node, although you can change it to use a different node (Atrides recently announced another one, for instance), or you can set it up to use a local daemon.

The release binary ( https://github.com/jwinterm/lightWallet/releases/download/v0.0.1-alpha/lightWallet.exe ) is a single file that has simplewallet.exe wrapped up inside of it, so you do still still need a 64 bit machine. Please check out the README.md file here as well:
https://github.com/jwinterm/lightWallet

I'm still working on the tx history part, and I'd like to add an address book, but since simplewallet itself doesn't really have either one of these features, I figured I'd go ahead and release it, since we have (at least) two open nodes to choose from now Smiley

The program should work to create new wallets or import non-deprecated wallets from their keys file (wallets with an electrum seed). There is an issue with simplewallet itself that prevents importing deprecated wallets at the moment, but this should be fixed in the next simplewallet release. The created/imported wallets will be stored in your My Documents folder in the lightWallet folder.

Here are a couple screenshots of the first two tabs:





Let me know what you think. I hope some people find it useful.

What if Monero one day pushed Esperanto into the spotlight?

In the future y'all can be Esperanto-speaking monero-using supermodels with robot body guards and cybernetic brain prostheses, if you like, but it may take a while.

Meanwhile, .0001 is not possible, because I will sink it all before that, personally.  (However, probably not with enough offered to buy everything at once, so that although it is guaranteed that there will exist some moving average period over which the bottom is > x, it is theoretically possible, albeit highly unlikely, that for a sufficiently narrow candle period, there might be one candle below x, if/when I provide a free put up to the whole float at x > 0.0001.)

Now that 0011 has held for 4 days, I think that each passing day increases the likelihood that the present price will prove to be the all-time bottom.  A week from now, I'll start to increase my buy rate on that theory, if it is still holding.

Nice work, jwinterm. Good-looking and functional GUI wallet.
 Cool
I will get around to trying the new GUI soon.

Can you please elaborate on what the version cutoff is for a "deprecated" wallet? (My apologies if it is in the readme or something)

To be honest, I'm not sure, but I think it is basically if you created a wallet in April or May. The current workaround for deprecated wallets is to use v0.8.8.4 to import the keys file and update the wallet, then you can use it in v0.8.8.5/6, but it will be fixed in the next simplewallet release. I'm pretty sure if you have an electrum seed for your wallet, then it's not deprecated.

My compliments on your work. To be clear, this still takes a lot of your RAM or doesn't it?

EDIT: I had to much beers, if I am reading the text correct it shouldn't eat up your RAM. If I can give you some advice, I would make the "tabs" horizontal instead of vertical, bit hard to read now (could be the alcohol, but still Tongue). Another point, if you create a new wallet the seed will be stored in a plain text file without encryption. I would advise to make some kind of announcement everytime you create a new wallet to encrypt to file or to make it a default thing to encrypt the textfile with the seed.

No, it is actually nice vertical. Ads some difference. Stop thinking horizontal only! (and girlz and booze, but that is another story)
Oh man, I knew this coin wasn't any sober investment.

Looks like a corrupt blockchain save file. Unless you can restore it from a backup you will need to download a new one, or resync the whole chain.

I don't know why it happened. Maybe you ran out of free disk space while saving it? That is just a guess.

thanks smooth, i'm re-downloading the blockchain and try to resync again...should i remove old p2pstate and poolstate files once i put in the new blockchain?

I'm pretty sure that most of these scam ICOs, if not all of them, involve the scammers running their own BTC through the ICO and ending up with both the BTC and the coin. So a disguised premine, with some extra BTC (but a much smaller unknowable amount) from idiots as a bonus.
I confirm from acquaintances: ICO are faked.

On a particular machine, sure. For example, if you are swapping lot, that will indeed happen on lot faster on a SSD, so it will speed up, but the underlying cause of the bigger slow down is the lack of RAM. People were talking about many minutes to an hour for a save. That is not pushing the limits of any HDD sequential speed, at all.
Old machine: Mintbox, 4Gb, 5400 RPM HDD, 4Gb. More than one hour
New machine: Laptop, 4Gb, SSD. A dozen minute top.

So tell how the HDD is not related? Both machines where running Linux. Mintbox is Arch + Xfce, which takes up less RAM than the new one (Ubuntu + Gnome 3).

I'd like to announce the first alpha release of my unofficial lightweight GUI simplewallet wrapper, lightWallet. Using this program, you don't need to run the bitmonerod daemon on your own computer or do anything on the command line.

See bolded above. SSD helps a lot if you are already short of RAM (which at 4 GB, you are). Bump up the RAM on there and a dozen minutes will be down to a minute or two (more or less regardless of drive).

* David Latapie remembers working on a 486DX maxed out in RAM (64MB) and playing Baldur's Gate with an indecent amount of RAM (24 MB - would work, but slowly, at a mere 8 MB).
And now 4 giga fucking byte is considered short...

I'll pastiche Warren Buffet and say the memory footprint has gone up a thousandfold but the producitvity has not gone up thousandfold.

Anyway, just a (not-so-old) grumpy man rambling...

Valid point, but I'd just say that at 4 GB you are pretty close to a critical point where even a small increase would have a disproportionately large benefit. The blockchain on disk is currently 3.2 GB. I don't know how that translates directly to in-RAM usage but I guess it might be slightly higher (or at least higher including other code, other applications, etc.). So you are right on the cusp of it being able to fit in RAM with a bit left over for I/O buffers and not being able to fit (i.e. swapping). 6 GB would probably be much faster than 4 GB and 2 GB is definitely much slower (I've tested it).

Summary: I recommend 6+ GB for best performance currently, 2+ GB for a bare minimum (with questionable at best performance). 4 GB is in between.

I have not upgraded RAM because we are getting the new DB soon®.  Is it correct to assume that 4GB will be sufficient for good performance with the new DB?

4 GB is plenty for that. Problems are still being found in testing (that's the point of it cf course) so it is good to be realistic about "soon". 4 GB does work (and as David pointed out, quite reasonably with an SSD), so not really an urgent issue in any case.
